Mako Mermaids: An H20 Adventure
This live action teen mermaid dramedy is the spin-off to the #1 ranked TeenNick television series H2O: JUST ADD WATER. The series launched on Netflix in July 2013 to overwhelming response, with nearly 300K consumer ratings giving it 4.5 out of 5 stars!
Synopsis: MAKO MERMAIDS is the new series spin-off of the smash hit H2O - JUST ADD WATER. Real-life mermaids Sirena, Nixie and Lyla are part of a mermaid pod, which lives in the waters of Mako Island. It is their job to protect the Moon Pool and guard it from trespassers. But on the night of a full moon, the mischievous mermaid girls neglect their duties. Suddenly sixteen-year-old land-dweller Zac enters the Moon Pool and is given a fish-like tail and amazing powers. The girls must venture onto land and take back Zac‘s powers - or risk being cast out forever!
While this TV series is made for young teens, my 8 year old daughter loves it. I suspect that it is her fascination with mermaids that draws her to the show. The plot is based on 3 real life mermaids who were cast out because they neglect their duties. To be able to return, they must take back Zac's power (a young boy who enters the moon pool and was given power as well as a tail). Season 1, Vol. 1 of this DVD set has 13 episodes. The episodes reveal the mermaids' adventures on land. Even though this series is made for young teens, I must admit that I enjoyed watching it with DD too.
